I bought a LivingSocial voucher for a tour that I would not be able to do so the company gladly exchanged it for another tour. Thank you so much. So I decided to do the Historic Downtown to Chinatown tour. Geovanni was our tour guide again. He is a great tour guide. He is very informative and he also showed us places that I have never heard of or seen. So we started our tour near Battery Park. Then we walked towards Wall Street. We saw Trinity Church, St. Paul’s Chapel and Ground Zero. Then we headed to City Hall, saw the Brooklyn Bridge and ended in Chinatown. This was be my third tour with this company and I would take another tour with them again.

We did a food tour with Giovanni and loved it. The food choices were excellent and the commentary was very interesting. Giovanni was a great guide. He is knowledgeable and engaging.

In January, I took the Better Adventures - Historic Downtown to Chinatown Tour. The tour goes from bottom of Manhattan, near Battery Park, to Chinatown.

First off, while I enjoyed this tour, our initial experience dealing with the tour company was not the best -- a miscommunication about our scheduled tour date. Geovannit was also late to our tour - a fact that had seemed to have happened the previous weekend tour as well.

But regardless, he made up for it with his knowledge and personality! You can tell how much he enjoys his job and loves the city. Plus he got us amazing food at the end of the tour from nearby Chinatown restaurants (as this was a foodie tour). There's a lot of history on this tour and we visited several downtown landmarks (churches etc) before heading to Chinatown.

I enjoyed this tour very much though --- I would recommend this tour or take one of their other ones as well.

For more information (and some photos from the tour), check out my blog post: http://goo.gl/T46XV

Geovanni, was a great and very informed tour guide. I had the pleasure of being on not only his Downtown / Chinatown tour, but his Central Park tour as well and both were executed perfectly. He did a great job of painting a picture of how NY was centuries ago and providing great detail in key parts of the tour.

Great job Geovanni!

Thank Danny C
